into the media mean of romney has to perform and if he doesn't it is an excuse of another round of in my mind disgustingly bias pieces against mitt romney and i believe bill is exactly right. when barack obama was challenged in that univision interview, last week, by hojorge ramos, he looks uncrtable when he's confronted with facts and simply worded question, when mitt romney reminds people, we have 11.7 unemployment, not 8.1%, america's best days have to be in front of her, i think he wins, not by having a, quote, human moment. i think that is a fool's earring but having a moment of real leadership and maturity. contrasted with a celebrity president who is comfortable with ellen or any of these late night hosts, than he is talking to the families of these insider attacks. i think romney has to be mature, and forceful, and has this idea, it is all in this debate, that is too convenient for the media. >> chris: juan, talk about it. but, because we kind of keep forgetting about obama. what does obama need to do. >> i think, president obama, he's leading in the polls, nationally and leading in t

expectations have been set, which is to say that romney, after performing poorly sometimes on the stump and not as well as president obama which of course is lauded for his great oratory, i think people expect a lot from president obama, so if he does turn in a work man like performance, or if he falls into any of his traps, if he looks peevish, anything along those lines, he could have a bad night, this although this could be a big moment for obama. >> why didn't the president come out and say what it was. >> obviously you're going to know more two weeks after an event than a week after an event, now based on the investigations of the intelligence community, they made the decision to conclude that this was a terrorist attack. in the days afterwards, that was not clear. you know, this is obviously a very, very fast moving period of time. >> eleanor, is there any political calculation here at all? >> i think every impetus on the part of the administration was to downplay the attack because they don't want any foreign policy -- nobody comes to a protest with rocket launchers so it had --
